- An homage to Joe Duarte, the grape grower who first introduced Larry Turley to the awesome vineyards of Contra Costa, The 2017 is a blend of grapes from the Evanghelo, Mori and Salvador vineyards, all in the CC AVA. The region's sandy soils contribute to the Duarte Zin's proclivity for having the "softest and silkiest tannins" of all the Turley releases.
